    Addressing these safety challenges must be a key priority for the new Prime Minister and Health Secretary. This report makes five recommendations, highlighting the vital role that the intelligent collection and monitoring of patient safety data, and the rapid response to any concerns they raise, can play in the continuous improvement of patient safety. Underpinning all of these recommendations is the principle that, first and foremost, patient safety needs to be seen and truly understood from the patient’s perspective. Recommendations: The breadth of patient safety data needs to in

    The health service’s independent data watchdog has issued a warning to local NHS bodies over concerns confidential patient information is being shared unlawfully with third parties, including for ‘population health’ analysis. In a letter to integrated care systems (ICSs), National Data Guardian Nicola Byrne and UK Caldicott Guardian Council chair Arjun Dhillon said they had both “been made aware that within some local record sharing programmes, organisations could be processing confidential patient information without ensuring that the processing does not breach confidentiality”.

    At least half of integrated care systems (ICS) lack plans for responding to cyberattacks, at a time of increasing cyber risks, HSJ can reveal. The findings also come at a time when the threat posed by cyber attackers is “constantly evolving”, and in the wake of a recent high-profile attack on a supplier to several trusts. In August 2021, NHS England published a framework – What Good Looks Like – to set out what ICSs and member organisations must achieve to be considered digitally mature. Requirements included that all ICSs should have a system-wide plan for “maintaining robust

    Key points A strong and effective ICS will have a deep understanding of all the people and communities it serves. The insights and diverse thinking of people and communities are essential to enabling ICSs to tackle health inequalities and the other challenges faced by health and care systems. The creation of statutory ICS arrangements brings fresh opportunities to strengthen work with people and communities, building on existing relationships, networks and activities.

    The article presents analysis showing that: there are many health-related metrics, such as number of preventable deaths, that increase as deprivation increases. there are several health-related metrics, including life expectancy and those receiving support from GPs, which decrease as deprivation increases. many health-related metrics—for instance people taking up NHS Health Check invitations and access to NHS dental services—do not correlate with the level of deprivation. The article argues that getting a better understanding of these relationships can help to underpi

    This conference will allow NHS organisations, local councils and others to come together and discuss collective responsibility for managing resources, delivering NHS standards, and improving the health of the population they serve. Attendees from the NHS and Local Authorities will learn that by working alongside each other, and drawing on the expertise of others such as local charities and community groups, they can help people to live healthier lives for longer, and to stay out of hospital when they do not need to be there.

    Safety observations It may be beneficial if local healthcare systems consider how best to support the investigation of cross-organisation safety events as they implement the Patient Safety Incident Response Framework. It may be beneficial if national and regional bodies consider how healthcare organisations can be supported to develop effective systems-based solutions to identified patient safety risks. It may be beneficial if healthcare organisations develop processes to identify safety improvement themes from patient safety investigation reports. It may be beneficial

    Population health is an increasingly clear and important priority for the health and care system and is key in addressing health inequalities. This is clear in the NHS Long Term Plan, in the 2022 Health and Care Act, and in the current and likely future policy landscape. A population health-led approach to health and care aims to improve physical and mental health outcomes, promote wellbeing and reduce health inequalities across an entire population. Whether you’re working in an integrated care system (ICS), primary care network, a national body, community group, or you’re someone wi

    Only a handful of integrated care systems have so far managed to implement a key expansion in their support for patients in mental health crisis. Internal NHS England documents, seen by HSJ, suggest that only 7 out of 42 health systems have begun offering enhanced mental health crisis support through the 111 helpline. This was a key target set out by the NHS long term plan in 2019, to be fully rolled out by next year. Some areas of the country have implemented the expansion, but others are lagging well behind, the document suggests. Currently, all areas offer separate 24/7 all-a

    Overview Digital technologies can enable better collaboration and joined-up services between health and care partners in integrated care systems (ICSs) and provider collaboratives. We explored what is needed for interoperability to progress in an ICS setting using existing literature and a combination of interviews and workshops with staff in the health and care system and national bodies. Through our workshops we trialled a method for creating a shared space to build trust and relationships while tackling tricky topics. Interoperability has three equally important aspects t

    Breaking down the barriers between organisations is key to the successful development of integrated care systems (ICSs), and the underpinning digital transformation that their introduction demands. Digital transformation can become the foundation of partnership working across health, social care, local government, and wider partners – including those in the voluntary, community and social enterprise, and private sectors – as place-based approaches to delivering care develop. This session from The King's Fund will explore what is being done to create collaborative digital strategies at IC
